John Lyle (19574547)

Suggested edit: I don't know when this headstone was erected. The brother, James Lyle, who died at Elmira prison, is not buried here, so his inscription on this stone is only a memorial. He is buried in the nearby Old Stone Cemetery at Landsford Canal State Park. I uncovered his tombstone in 2018. This is what I wrote for my research: "An inventory of Old Stone Cemetery indicated that James Lyle's remains were buried there, but I initially could not find his marker. Examination of the Lyle family plot showed Jane buried to the right of her husband, David. Curiously, her grave had two footstones, both with initials "J.L." (Figure D) This suggested that there were two bodies buried there: mother and her son, James. Digging through the undergrowth and a layer of soil confirmed the presence of his stone, lying broken between Janes' headstone and their footstones." I have a grave rubbing and photo of the headstone for James, son of David and Jane. They say "James son of David & Jane Lyle Died Dec. 10 1864 Aged 35 years" You can find my Find A Grave memorial for him under his name at Old Stone Cemetery.
